Horse

Colour DARK GREY

The Horse is a fantastically inviting springer which attracts and supports children's play relentlessly, time after time. The rocking sensation is a great movement response. Movement response is one of the greatest play sensations there are. Apart from the fun, this adds a feeling of control to the child's play. The responsive movement also trains the understanding of cause and effect in young children: that actions have an effect on the world. Rocking on the Horse trains the child's sense of balance and space as well as hand and arm muscles when holding tight and pushing their feet hard into the foot support. All of these basic motor skills and muscle training actions help train the child's bodily cognition, supporting important life skills such as being able to sit still on a chair or navigate traffic securely.

Play Value

Play value is the value gained from play, the value that makes the child “want” or developmentally “need” to undertake the activity and thus gives the play item holding power. Play value can be described very precisely in developmental terms, looking into the human physical, cognitive, social and emotional developmental stages.

Theme

Cognitive

suggests a theme and supports dramatic play, which stimulates languages and communication skills.

Handhold

Physical

the possibility to hold onto more areas of the handhold ensures a good grip, necessary for rocking intensely. This trains hand and arm muscles.

Foot support

Physical

a good footrest supports intensive rocking. Rocking stimulates the senses of balance and space that are fundamental in managing the world securely. To rock intensely also supports coordination and muscle strength.

Rocking spring

Physical

response to movements adds to spatial awareness and sense of balance. These are fundamental motor skills that help the child's ability to sit still on a chair which takes a good sense of balance.

Cognitive

trains the understanding of cause and effect: when I move my body, the spring responds with movement.
